Visiting Whitby | From our Bed and Breakfast in North Yorkshire
Whitby is a traditional maritime seaside town steeped in history and set among spectacular cliffs and bays. Here you can discover the legends of smugglers, Dracula and whaling or enjoy the sandy blue flag beach and explore the 13th century cliff top Abbey, bustling quayside, picturesque houses and twisted cobbled streets. There are 199 steps taking you down from the cliff top into the old town's maze of narrow streets and shops selling antiques, crafts and jewellery made from locally mined jet.
Whitby was once renowned as one of the country's most important ship building ports and it's where explorer Captain James Cook's ships were built. You can visit the Captain Cook Memorial Museum in Whitby and see where James Cook served his apprenticeship.
